    Here are some pics of my latest figure - it's painted in acrylics. I changed the face slightly - altered the shape of the nose and the beard. Hope you like it.

    Good looking figure but doesn't look oriental enough for me.

    I don't paint Ancients but I think I may well start because of this figure. Superbly painted.

    Great use of subdued colors. No blazing red and blue with gold and silver patterns.

    Just what I thought

    True but that's really down to the sculptor (though Edward does say that he did a nose job and hair transplant and of course the skintones are down to him).

    There's no verified picture of G-K but various later ones here and Kublai here plus general refs to 'Mongol' features. and this (c2.58) is probably fairly realistic (for him, not necessarily the 'whirling dervish swordsmen)... and a great film.

    Thanks a lot for the comments guys! For the face, I took inspiration from the movie "Mongol" - the actor is actually Japanese though!

    Yes, he is Japanese but seemingly they share the same eye shape (vs Chinese) and otherwise he shows the same sort of flattened/squarish face/nose and wispy beard that I don't feel your bod quite captures* ... but, as I said in agreement with Winfield, in that the subdued colours are spot on, so as a piece of painting it's good.

    *but there again, I've yet to post any of my work, so I can hardly criticise o_O
